U1WOUU Ul Tvonderful spectacle In our city for benefit of the Patton Memorial hospi taL ' Momus, Comus, and all the my thological world lend their aid. Cupid hurls his arrow and Puck the pet of Shakespeare plays his part. , Every country lends its help from tho court ly minuet of France, the gay fandango of Spain, the merry may pole of Eng land, the tarantello of Italy, the fling from Scotland to the jig of the dear old Ireland. v The press and people of every city in which the Kirmess has been pre sented are most lavish in their praise. It's beautyi is beyond description says one writer. It must be seen to be ap preciated. It is a combination of , everything theatrical. It is grand opera and there is comedy. Terpsil choje Is there in her most pronounced type. .Thalia, the muse of the drama, for a while holds sway. All are called upon to make perfect, this most gor geous affair Every state in the union has sung the praises of the Kirmess. The most recent productions have been In our neighboring cities. The press of Macon, Columbia and Charlotte are most generous in their praises where very recently the kirmess has been played. The ' Macon Telegraph has this to say: . . "The - kirmes is astonishing. It is hipporome, light opera, pageant su preme, tableau and fairy land thrown together, and refined and presented in a living luxury of beauty and grace. It is the dance in all its manifold mod ern forms, danced by little girls, larg er girls, grown jnen and women.' Already large crowds are being re hearsed at several hotels, the different groups are practicing. Hundreds of children fill the streets every after noon on their way to the rehearsals. The Instructors are past masters in their profession and fortunate is the participant who have this opportunity to be taught the beautiful art of danc inn, acting and singing. That gem of Carmen,, the Avanere, will be sung as will be that master piece, the Torea- dore, from the same opera. The gems of the Mikado will be rendered by the best voices in the city. New York city's latest sensation will be given The best of Its kind from a' theatrical point of view is embodied in this mam moth production. There will be eipr scenes, a full two hours' show and from the wonderful opening scene the like of which Henderson ville has never witnessed until the closing chorus in the Parisian cabaret there is not a dull moment. Every one owes It to him self to see the kifmess. , The Cabaret What possibly will prove the crown ing scene of the whole kirmess will be the famous cabaret scene. Try to imagine yourself rally in rectors; try to see the lights, the beautiful restly burroundings, as they really are in this famous resort. Watch the anima ted couples at the many tables; noar the hum of conversation and as the numerous artists perform, it will be an easy thing to tuink that Rector's is really the scene of it all. This cabaret scene will be a faith ful detail of the modern cabaret. In this famous scene will be intro duced every variety of act and actors. NEWSPAPER AS TEXT BOOK. (Gastonia Gazette.) The newspaper ought to be used as a high school text-book and as a lab oratory that is the doctrine which Merle Thorpe, professor of Journalism in the University of Kansas, who set before his students in a new .course of 'nigh School Journalism' in the sum mer session of the University of Cali fornia at Berkeley from June 21 to July 31." The above item from The Fullerton (Col.) News strikes us as being timely. If the newspaper is considerally such a power in the world, generally speak ing, why should it not be used, to more advantage in the school room. Prof. Thorpe says that public school teach- rers are very negligent of the friend ship of the press, seemingly indifferent to its influence and helpfulness and states that he has visited communities in which the teacher was scarcely ac quainted with the editors of the home papers. In their public gatherings, commencements- and school openings they seemed to think the only persons of importance are' the school trustees. Aside from this feature of the use of newspapers,, another and more val uable use is that made in the visualis ing of the study of history, civics, English and the like. Current events history in the making and world facts are all gleaned from the newspape: and appeal more strongly than do tb same facts gathered from text-books.. V LEADS THE UNITED STATES'. . North Carolina has more Whole-time County Health Officers, twelve at told, than any other state in the Union, said Dr. Stiles of the United States Public Health Service to the Country Life Conference at the University the other day. Adequate attention to'public health and sanitation calls for competence, couragei energy, initiative and freedom from dependence upon private practice on part of the county health officer. Anything short of this will" still leave the people of any county scourged by postponeable, preventable deaths year by year. , '-..7" ' The whole-time health officer is the thing" and Dr. W.

ARMY AND NAVY OFFICIALS ASSEMBLING INFORMATION New Plans it is Believed Will Call for Large Number Submarines, Bat tleships and Dreadnaughts. Washington, July 25 Pending Pres ident Wilson's return from Cornish, N. H., when he will formulate with Secretary- Garrison and Secretary Dan iels what the white house has an nounced will be a sane, reasonable and practical program of national defense, army and navy .officials are . busy as sembling the information upon which the new military policy s "will be founded. No announcements have been made as to what the army and navy boards at work o nthe needs of the re3pectiv services have concluded ,but it is known that both have been Tell ad vanced. It has been planned to lay the reports before the respective secre taries within a month or six weeks but in view of the white house state ment it was regarded as probable to night that they would be rushed to completion and submitted within a few days. It is definitely known that navy plans contemplate a big increase in submarines, the building of thirty and perhaps fifty being recommended, that several . battle cruisers will . be urged and at least four dreadnoughts, and that a big increase in the . auxiliary fleet and in navy aircraft will be sought. Several additional navy yards to serve as submarine bases 'also will be susrerested, it is thought. Such a program would carry with it of necessity nn inrrensA in naw npr- onnel and pr0bably the enlargement of the academy at Annapolis, where navy officers are trained. Army plans look to the building, up of an army of 500,000 men, -regulars and militia, within territorial United States. This has long been the figure at which army officers placed the need3 of the country for defense. To make the plan efficient.it is be lieved some scheme to federalize the militia will be advanced and also that methods of building up reserves for both the regulars and militia will be proposed. Another feature to receive attention probably will be plans for training of ficers for the volunteer forces. En largement of West Point may be re commended. - This general plan contemplates, in is understood, only the mobile forces. The coast artillery, garrisons for the canal zone, Hawaii, the Philippines, Alaska and Porto Rico will be consid ered separately. Great attention will be given to. fully presenting to the president the material problem. Army officers hold that ample equipment of field guns, rifles, machine guns and heavy field ordnance must be made in advance. Field gun ammunition and small army carriages can be turned out in a hurry. It is said private plants to make these have increased many foli under the stimulus of European con tracts. AN OBJECT LESSON? - A city daily tells us how a certain municipal farm is to be made "a prac tical demonstration" and "an object lesson'" to the farmers in the sur rounding country. It is a run-down farm, considered "almost worthless" Bt the present time but we venture the assertion that it cost the city some thing anyhow. Great results are pre dicted in the restoration of this land by "intelligent" farming and by the uee of "many car-roads" of street sweepings and manure from the city stables. Intelligent farming will help, but we resent the idea so often ex pressed or implied . that farmers are lacking in agricultural intelligence. Perhaps any of the farmers who are to be enlightened by this municipal demonstration or; object lesson could teach the city farmers something about restoring run-down land with; many car-loads of street sweepings and ma nure. If these municipal farmers want to make a demonstration help- Inl. to. real -farmers let them build upti this land -without manure other than what the farm produces and pay for everything out of the farm at the same time. Sucfe a demonstration of "Intel ligent" farming would be worth some thing to any community. National Stockman and Farmer.. . ; ; WORTH COIICIDEEATIOTr TEACHEKS TO MEET SATUEDAT.

The Literary Digest, the well-known. and Indispensable current event week ly, has shown a most admirable : edi torial on neutrality in dealing with in ternational happenings, says - tho North Carohna Christian Advocate. All others seem either to be pro-English or pro-German; but The Literary JDigest is like the little baby neutral. in that it resembled neither father nor mother. Its admirable tone may be gathered from the following item! clipped from a recent number: "Although the wrong done to Amer ican oversea commerce by Great Bri tain's "starvation blockade" of Ger many has been overshadowed in the public's mind by the killing of AmerK can women arid children by German torpedoes, our press shows almost as little inclination to yield ground on the one issue as the other. In both cases, they seem to feel, this country speaks . for all the neutral nations in behalf of the rights that are theirs by law and usage. .. "While our State Department's pro test of there months ago against Eng land's resort to a course of action pre viously unknown to international law has not yet been answered, a British memorandum dated June 17' has again brought the - matter definitely before the court of public opinion. In this memorandum the British government, after describing in detail the steps it has taken to alleviate the hardships suffered by American shipping nuder its blockade . policy, concludes that it 'can scarcely admit that on the basis of actual facts any substantial griev ance on the part of American citizens ' Is justified.' Yet hundreds of ex porters and importers are besieging the State department with petitions, the Washington correspondents tell us, seeking relief from the British em bargo. , - "One committee that conferred with S'ecretary of State Lansing spoke for importers who have $50,000,000 worth of articles tied up in Germany because of the refusal of the British govern ment to allow them to come through to the United States." American food products packers are pushing Washington to have England free their more than $14,000,000 worth of merchandise tied up .t present in British prize courts. V BLEASE WILL BE A CANDIDATE. Hot Springs, N. C, July 21. Ex Governor Cole L. Blease, of South Car olina will lecture Friday night at 8 o'clock at the auditorium of the South ern Normal college here. Blease says that unless conditions in South Caro lina politics change very rapidly. and materially, he will be a candidate vor governor next summer. From state ments made by Blease it is predicted that the only change of conditions that defeat ths prophecy is death. "I" have pardoned," says Blease, "about 1.700 people. I feel I have acted according . to my best knowledge and conscience. Only two of the number pardoned, to my knowledge, have been, re-sente ne ed. My religion is : 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." The governor, accompanied . by L. B. Roach, of Columbia and C. H..H. Kelso, a private detective, is well pleased with Hot Springs, and will remain here until Saturday. , - PRESBYTERIAN STATISTICS. "There are now 1,226 missionaries , from our church in missions abroad," says the foreign mission secretary of the Presbyterian church, U. S. A. "To furnish personal support and living accommodations and the actual neces sities of the work for appropriation of $1,012.50 per missionary. To cut this down or to threaten to cut it down is a shadow upon each missionary's spirit. -' , "Let it be remembered that upon amount the missionaries themselves are maintained, and that in addition they employed 5,766 native workers, and conducted 1,781 colleges, training schools, medical schools, theological seminaries, high schools and elemen tary schools with 64,687 pupils, 3,104 Sunday schools with 154,139 pupils, 173 hospitals and dispensaries with 305,035 patients, and ten presses is suing 95,105,452 pages last year. All this costs less than one-half the an nual budget of Columbia university alone." JUST A. LITTLE TOO MUCH. .They had been engaged three yeae but there seemed no 7 indications that the good ship matrimony was hovering in the offing. She was getting rest less, but when she touched the sub ject he dexteriously turned the con versation. ' ' Recently he turned it off to. physi ology, a science of which he was a student. ?.' "Yes," he said airly, "it is a strange but well-authenticated fact that the -whole of . the human body changes every seven years. - You, my dear, are Miss Jones -now. In seven years you will have completely-changed. Not a particle of your present self will be left; but all the same, you will be Miss Jones.'
